Jason Aldean and one of his musical heroes, Bob Seger , energized the Factory at Franklin during their CMT Crossroads taping on Tuesday night (Oct. 28) in Franklin, Tennessee. The one-hour special will premiere Nov. 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
Aldean and Seger kicked off the night by trading verses on Aldean’s “Night Train” and “Just Gettin’ Started.” After a couple more of Aldean’s hits, Seger brought out his touring band, and the singers teamed up for “Turn the Page” and “Against the Wind,” along with a few new songs.
Aldean told the capacity crowd he sang Seger songs in clubs as a teenager and that he was now able to cross off a big milestone from his bucket list.
Throughout the night, the classic rocker grinned and danced to nearly every song — whether it was Aldean’s or his own.
Seger just released his first studio CD in eight years, Ride Out. He is among the top all-American rock stars — a multitalented artist, songwriter and producer whose indelible body of work has affirmed his place in the annals of rock music. Inducted to both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Seger has sold over 52 million albums.
Aldean released his sixth album, Old Boots, New Dirt, on Oct. 7. Its lead single, “Burnin’ It Down,” earned platinum certification in only nine weeks, making it the fastest-selling single of 2014. To date, Aldean has sold more than 9 million albums and has taken multiple trips to No. 1 on the country radio charts. Each of his previous albums has been certified platinum.
